Have a question to the masses in regards to hooks. It pretains to larger hooks and I guess, well all hooks in general. I myself have been a long time supporter of Gammy's in the smaller sizes and Eagle Claws for my sturgeon hooks, but over the last year have been finding different styles and am curious as to their effectiveness. I bought some last year on ebay :wallbash: that were described as sturgeon hooks. When they arrived it turns out the hooks were some type of hook for cod fishing ( so I've been told). I tried them and the first fish, which was by no means a large fish 4'r, straighted the shank out. I have noticed these Duratin curved hooks which they swear by hook ups and strength. They look like a awsome hook for holding large roe sacks or other bait, but will the fish spit them easily due to thier curved design. I know fishing is a evolutionary sport, but sometimes it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks.
